This week’s lineup of new Xbox One releases includes trips to sunless seas, savage planets, and the Big Apple.

Machinarium, the classic point-and-click adventure game from Amanita Design is finally coming to Xbox One this week. The game’s distinctive art and wordless narrative are timeless, and its puzzles  a delight to solve. It’s an old game, sure, but also one to treasure.

Typhoon Studios’ comedic sci-fi adventure Journey to the Savage Planet also receives its first major content expansion. New traversal methods should make the trip to the planet DL-C1 (get it?) one to remember.


Other new Xbox One releases include Vampire: The Masquerade – Coteries of New York, pixel art platformer Cryogear, and boys’ love visual novel, Blind Men.

The Xbox blog also mentions that the long-awaited Xbox One version of Sunless Sea is due. Things can change, but we understand the release date is set for April 24, 2020.

Each new game can be purchased from the Xbox One digital games store and Microsoft online store. Here’s the confirmed new release lineup.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
